Auction Description:I am selling a guitar of mine that is very near and dear to my heart. It is very unique in that it is a Gibson Smartwood Les Paul built with exotic woods (specifications listed below) and it also is equipped with a set of active EMG 85/89 pickups in place of the original stock pickups (stock pickups not included). Gold Planet Waves Auto-Trim Tuning Machines have also been installed ($59.99 value). The original tuners will be included.The reason I am selling the guitar is because my wife and I are downsizing our lifestyle in order to prepare for our second child and save up for our dream home. Although this guitar is what I considered for a while to be my “dream guitar”, I will have to accept that there is another one out there for me that I will eventually come across when the time is right.The guitar has not been played very much at all and as a result, it is in great condition. In fact I’ve only used it for in-studio recording purposes and some practicing. Believe it or not, it’s been played so little that I’ve never needed to change the 9 volt battery that powers the active pickups (I will install a new battery prior to shipping). I have other guitars that I’ve played live that have seen a lot more wear and tear… not this one.The cost to ship the guitar is roughly $100… I will pay half of this cost ($50). If you are local to Delaware, a pickup can be arranged free of charge.What you will be receiving:1 Gibson Les Paul Smartwood Guitar1 Gibson Brown Hardshell Case w/ Pink Lining, Storage Compartment & Combination Lock (code to open: 777)1 Gibson Guitar Care Kit (Includes Fretboard Conditioner, Metal Cleaner, Restorative Finish Cream (specially formulated for nitrocellulose lacquer finishes), three Gibson polish cloths, and a Gibson 2″ nylon guitar strap.)Guitar Specifications:”Highly figured Muir wood brings a new level of exotic beauty to Gibson’s famous Les Paul guitar, while the SmartWood label is its seal of approval from the Rainforest Alliance, underscoring Gibson’s continuing commitment to sustainable forestry management.” – Gibson.comProduct Code: LPEXMUGH1Manufactured in: Nashville, TNBODYTop Wood: MuiricatiaraBack Wood: MahoganyJack Location: RimNECKWood: MahoganyProfile: ’59 RoundedPeghead Pitch: 17oThickness at 1st fret: .808″Thickness at 12th fret: .963″Heel Length: .625″Tuner Hole Size: .404″Nut Type: MoldedNeck Joint Location: 16th FretFINGERBOARDWood: PreciosaScale Length: 24 3/4″Total Length: 18.062″Number of Frets: 22Width at 12th Fret: 2.062″HARDWAREPlating Finish: GoldTailpiece: StopbarBridge: Tune-o-maticKnobs: Gold TophatTuners: Planet WavesELECTRONICSNeck Pickup: EMG 89 PickupBridge Pickup: EMG 85 Pickup
